Premier Victor Ponta said Monday evening that PSD will decide whom it will support for the positions of Constitutional Court (CC) judge, to replace those who end their mandate, adding that the former speaker of the Chamber of Deputies between 2000-2004, Valer Dorneanu, whose name is alleged for one of these positions, is among the best trained and qualified for this position. “We will discuss in the parliamentary group about these proposals, because one belongs to the Chamber of Deputies, one to the Senate, one to the president. I made no decision with this regard,” Ponta said, quoted by Mediafax. Later, the premier mentioned yesterday that, if the Senate will vote to send Justice minister Mona Pivniceru to the CC, she will leave the government. USL sources told gandul.info that the two names proposed for the position of CC judge are Mona Pivniceru – to be proposed by the Senate, with the support of PNL – and Valer Dorneanu by the Chamber of Deputies, supported by PSD. According to the sources, Pivniceru will leave the government in these conditions. Also yesterday, Romania TV announced that “in cards” for the three offices of CCR judges, besides Dorneanu and Pivniceru, is also the presidential advisor Cristian Diaconescu, supported by the presidential institution. On the other hand, the premier announced that next week the government will discuss the ordinance on the housing units administered by RA-APPS (the Autonomous Administration of– State Patrimony Protocol), adding that these villas will be reserved for the ministers and state secretaries who live outside Bucharest, for three months at most. He said that those who currently live in these protocol villas may purchase them. “Either they buy them, or they will be evicted if someone else buys them, but they may buy them. I am interested to sell them, so we can make money,” Ponta explained.
